Bicycle Racers Get Quite the Surprise When a Horse Joins the Race

Posted by Paige Cerulli

Bicycle racers probably never imagined that they'd be racing a horse, but thanks to an enthusiastic grey, that's just what happened. 

You never know just what you'll encounter when you head out for a bicycle ride, but something tells us that the bicyclists in this race never imagined that they'd find themselves suddenly racing a horse.

Bicyclists in the Foyle Cycling Club Tour of the North West stage race in Co Donegal, Ireland were joined by an unlikely race participant. A grey horse, clearly excited by all of the commotion, jumped his pasture fence and ended up right in the middle of the race himself.

Luckily no one was hurt in the commotion, and the horse appeared to jump just ahead of the leading cyclists. He seemed quite pleased to join in the race, cantering along the road and leading the pack proudly.

Take a look at this amazing video.
